To All,

I've followed this discussion with interest and thought to make a
to it. Namely, a list of helpful references on signal integrity and many
fields. I think that signal integrity engineers are often challanged with
problems in these related fields.

So, here is my list:

List of Reference Textbooks

1.1 Contents

1. Signal Integrity
2. Basic Circuit Design
3. The Physics of Solid State Devices
4. SPICE Modeling and Parameter Measurements
5. Semiconductor Circuit Analysis
6. RF Design
7. PW Boards Operating at Microwave Frequencies
8. Analysis of Electromagnetic Fields
9. Noise Reduction in Components and Circuits
10. Noise Reduction and Electromagnetic Fields
11. Behavioral Modeling
12. CAE and Systems Engineering
13. Reliability Engineering
14. Statistical Design
15. Model Verification
16. Construction, Layout, Shielding, Etc.
17. Testing and Troubleshooting
18. Handbooks
19. Design Methodologies
20. Engineering Mathematics

1.2 Disclaimer

My listing of the following textbooks and references is subject to the
usual disclaimers:
Use them at your own risk. I have not verified their accuracy and do not
any results as a result of using them. I have no financial interest in any
of them.
